Cross-platform power tips for OneNote
OneNote is the hidden gem in Office, more than a decade old but still earning new converts regularly. In recent years, Microsoft has moved it from bit player to star performer. It's a completely cross-platform app now, with desktop versions for Windows and OS X, mobile versions on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone, across-the-board tablet support, and web versions when an app isn't handy.
The more you use OneNote, the more valuable it becomes, thanks to its ability to help you pull together personal and work details in a free-form way.
In this gallery, I present six of my favorite OneNote productivity secrets.
Add to-do tags to any list
One of the best uses for OneNote is to create lists of tasks, objectives, milestones, and so on. By storing that list on a page in OneDrive, you can sync the list's contents to the OneNote app on any device, including PCs and Macs, smartphones, and tablets.
From any of those platforms, you can click in any line and add a checkbox at the front of that item. That checkbox, called a To Do Tag, lets you click or tap to mark an item as complete. This information is synced to all your device as well, so you can check the status of every item on your to-do list from anywhere.
The To Do Tag button is on the Home ribbon in OneNote for Windows and at the top of the page on iOS and Android devices.
